Set amongst 200 acres of private woodland, Bear’s Cottage is unique in every way. This delightful four-bedroom luxury self-catering cottage offers pure escapism from the stresses of everyday life. It just a short drive to the beautiful local villages, towns and the stunning north Norfolk coast. The established woodland which surrounds Bear’s Cottage contains many famous specimen trees, planted in the 1850s and the woods harbour an abundance of flora and fauna.

The location of Bear’s Cottage is rare and you will revel in the complete privacy it provides; tucked away down a one mile private driveway. There is no doubt that children will delight in exploring the private woods surrounding this North Norfolk location, but you will also fall in love with this luxurious self-catering cottage too.

Please note: Bear’s Cottage is not on the main Fring Estate. As such, guests at Bear’s Cottage do NOT have access to the Fring Estate facilities.



Restored in 2016, the cottage has lost none of its individuality and charm and the old stables have been converted into what is now a large kitchen and open plan living space. The house now offers all the modern conveniences and luxuries you could wish for, with a large open plan kitchen, dining, living area with vaulted ceiling and beams, wooden floorboards and bi-fold doors opening up onto the lawned garden and woodland beyond. At the front of the house there is a cosy snug with a wood-burner, where you can relax on an evening, plus a practical downstairs shower room and a separate utility room. Downstairs you’ll also find a twin bedroom and en-suite bathroom, perfect if some members of your party want a little more privacy.

Climb the stairs to the first floor and you’ll discover three further bedrooms, two of which have king size beds and wash basins and a children’s twin bedroom plus a spacious family bathroom with feature freestanding claw-footed bath.

Bring your bikes, bring your dogs and come with a deep desire to discover more about nature and a strong willingness to let go, chill-out and enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation!

Bear’s Cottage is unique and you’ll just love it!

Beautiful North Norfolk Location

Bears Cottage is located 1 mile into Fulmodeston Severals woodland. Take the A1067 Norwich road out of Fakenham, approximately 5 miles to Guist. At Guist, turn left at the clock tower, taking the B1110 sign posted to Holt. Travel on the B1110 Holt road for 1.8 miles where you’ll enter a 50mph zone.  Continue on the B1110, passing crossroads where the right heads to Wood Norton and the left towards Stibbard. Shortly after, you’ll drive through a slight/long S-bend, then note a right-hand turn for Wood Norton, with Four Acre Farm Camping and Caravan Site on your left. 300 yards beyond, and still on your left, is a private driveway flanked by brick walls. Severals Grange name plate is on the wall and confirms the correct driveway.

Turning left into this driveway continue straight ahead, driving carefully on this residential drive until you reach a double five-bar gate. Please unlock the padlock and close the gate behind you. Periodic white posts on your right lead you on the correct path until the drive opens out to the Bears Cottage clearing. More about how to find us here.
